Spring is really coming now*. I know this because I raked the leaves off the magnolia bed by the dining room door so the small shoots of crocuses can get some sun.
Also, I spent some time cleaning up the front porch, which is currently home to A.'s camping pack, many traps, a bunch of mostly broken fishing poles, and some other miscellaneous crap.
But at least now it's not also covered with loose hay from when A. had bales of hay there to store out of the snow. A small but important improvement.
On Monday it's supposed to be sunny and something like 55 degrees. I have big plans to hand wash my wool sweaters and lay them outside to dry.
Big doings to celebrate spring at Blackrock, obviously.
So what about you, my lovelies? What are some of your spring rituals?
* Yes, I know it's already spring according to the calendar. The calendar can go to . . . well. It's spring when it feels like spring, and this year, March was not spring-like at all. So there.
